The Digital Revolution Starts at the Bottom

Jonathan Becher, SAP Chief Digital Officer, says that culture is one of the biggest challenges in the adoption of new digital technologies.

“Organization’s culture is what brings success – if technology is the fuel that drives progress, then culture is the engine. Culture, however, cannot be dictated from above,” Becher told Romania’s ‘Revista Biz’. He added that the term “digital revolution” is apt because revolutions start from small individual contributions that then lay the groundwork for change. “Digital transformation may manifest much quicker in areas such as media or finance as opposed to administration, construction and agriculture. But I think that the digital revolution is here and every company in every industry will be affected. Even companies that believe that they are already digital must continue to evolve in order to keep up with new waves of digitization.”
